How are inverted nipples corrected?

This video shows how Adrian Richards corrects inverted nipples. The operation is performed under local anaesthetic and takes approximately 30 minutes for both sides.

Most commonly, an incision will be made at the base of the nipple to release the fibres and milk ducts that are causing the nipple to retract. Biodegradable sutures would then be used to prop up the nipple during its recovery process.

Alternatively, an incision can be made to divide or free the milk ducts and problematic fibres internally.

The procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes (15mins on each side) and is performed under local anaesthetic. Nipple Correction can also be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction.
